Higher learning curve than necessary 1/5
By feet challenge
Hard to use...inefficient and inconvenient interface. Developers should compare with other similar apps and will know very quickly what they got wrong if they are observant...
Missing Info 2/5
Utterly lacks rush hour yellow line to Franconia.
What is Going On? 3/5
Your "real time" is so in error when the last bus is 6:52 pm and u r saying the bus will be there in 20mins. Are u have a hard time connecting to WMATA? This is nerve wrecking for the past week, get it together. Otherwise it's OK but I need a back up App. Since Xmas your App is behaving wacked plus you schedule listings are really wrong, make the correction. I got your App so that I would not have to carry Metro's bus schedules with me.
Half way working 2/5
By Kingstowne fella
App does not provide train departure information for End Stations... Why ??? So if I live near an end stations I have to go into the WMATA website? Doesn't that defeat the purpose of the app? This app is a reflection of their lack of forward thinking.
So sad !
Needs update 3/5
App is fine but no update yet on the new DC Circulator Route - National Mall
No info on silver line until falls E Falls Church 1/5
Not helpful for train riders west of falls church
Someone that uses this app often 5/5
Very accurate 💯 great app 👍🏾
Obnoxious full page ads 2/5
By Great until ads
Ads are beyond reasonable, if selling an ad free version of an app whose purpose is to sell you another service is ever reasonable. There are the normal small ads on the main page that make it slow to load. Then, if you leave it unattended for a minute or so, a full page ad pops up. It includes more stops and I like that it shows you the schedule as well as real time. It's no more accurate than the earlier version and not really worth switching.
Big help! 3/5
UPDATE!!! I've always found this app helpful until this recent update. Now the ads are the WORST!! They cover pop up at the most inconvenient times, and far too frequently - and they cover the ENTIRE SCREEN!! I can't even select all my search parameters before one pops up, followed by another each and every time I switch screens!! I'm looking for another app!
Helpful & Reliable 4/5
Is pretty much all I have to say!
Love it, just missing trip planner 4/5
Great app with complete info about public transport in DC. Would give it 5 stars if it had a trip planner (if it has one haven't found it).
I like it! 5/5
Really good app! Always pretty accurate. I wish you could rename/nickname favorite stations though. I love the "nearby" feature--that's always how I decide whether to take the bus home or take an uber.
Great App 4/5
It's very useful & great app if you know the buses your route around. Certain buses it doesn't show their arrivals thou wmata does.
Removes the guessing 4/5
It removes the guessing of when the next bus or train is coming. I also like being able to find buses near wherever I am.
Don't bother 1/5
Just like everything associated with DC's metro system, this app is horrible. Regularly tracks buses that never show up.
Really helpful 5/5
I live at the Shady Grove end of the red line and don't think I could have managed to survive the various recent delays without this app. It often has train info not available on the station screens. And being able to access alerts makes it easy to plan my time. I find the app comfortable and easy to use.
Very accurate and useful app 5/5
This app is very useful for getting DC metro rail times. It is quite accurate and very handy for everyday commute.
I am, generally, pleased with the app.
Finally a good DC metro app! 5/5
This is my 3rd attempt at finding a transit app that is easy to use and doesn't crash. Very well designed and intuitive! Definitely a keeper!
I love this app, it's very accurate & helpful.
The app works 2/5
It doesn't crash so it automatically gets another star. That's about the only good thing about it though. Doesn't show arrival/departing times for any metro stops. To the creator; Take a look at the CalTrain app. That's how it should be done.
Terrible, Shockingly basic 1/5
Lack of a trip planner is absurd, the app is effectively useless for tourists. Next bus crashes frequently.
This App is very unreliable early in the morning 4/5
We too have this problem with the Washington DC bus display arrivals in this app -- usually early in the mornings, it simply will not work and just keeps searching and searching.
DC metro app 5/5
Works perfectly for me every day very useful app
My go-to public transportation app! 5/5
Thank you for adding ART bus data!
By RJ Shank
A must have app if staying or visited the DC metro area for any extended period of time!
Good stuff 4/5
accurate bus and train arrival times. Saves a lot of time waiting. Good stuff
Awesome app 5/5
Surprisingly accurate. Huge time saver.
Enjoy this app, but one of my bus stops is no longer on the map. B8 by Costco in fort Lincoln is no longer showing
Very user friendly -- love it! 5/5
I love this app. I use it for both bus and train schedules. I find the information reliable. I love the "favorites" option; it streamlines my use of the app. I also appreciate how it filters notifications. I find I get very little irrelevant information that way. Lots of effort went into this design and it shows -- thank you!!
Never working 1/5
I used this app last year and it was great. For some reason since I've gotten back to DC it never works and it's annoying. I just want to know what time the bus comes
It's okay. Sometime info doesn't show
By Like Running with friends
Bring back Next Bus! You all have no idea what your doing!
Not very accurate lately 2/5
Since about August 15 it hasn't worked right. Some lines have no info. Other lines are just inaccurate. I reported the issues but nothing has been fixed.
Best DC commuter app 5/5
Easily the best of the apps out there for DC metro. Accurately gives upcoming times for both metro and bus, and looks much crisper and cleaner than the other apps.
Great App For DMV Commuters 5/5
By Princess Jewell
I use this Metro App everyday and I love it. It takes the guess work out of when a bus will actually arrive and what will be my best route option to get to my destination. I have over 20 Apps on my phone and I rate this one the best and most useful.
Great for bus & metro riders 5/5
By Rin Okumura19
Im recommending this app to friends and to my family would love to see updates thank you.
Use it everyday 4/5
By Beltane lass
I love this app because it makes commuting easier. I use it every day for metro updates or to check for the next bus.
Not helpful 2/5
By DC Animal Lover
Not very helpful, hard to use, and DOESNT HAVE A TRIP PLANNER!!!!!!!! The Trip Planner is the most helpful part of the website, why would it not be on the app?
2.5 Star Rated 2/5
By SkyyPhone 2
This app is helpful but isn't as real as if can be. Please add ability to add and track Smart Trip Card Value and 5 stars will be in reach.
Hate it 1/5
It doesn't locate me and when I typed in my bus route number it couldn't read it and When it finally shows my bus it gives me the wrong time
Not helpful for visitors to DC. 1/5
Since DC is an national and international tourist destination, I feel this app falls far short with its capabilities. I use the DC metro about 8 times per year so I downloaded the app to help me know what stations are near my destinations. It has no capability for that. I would think someone could design the app to allow me to type in the address of my destination and let me know which metro station is closest. The Metro section of the app offers no such search option. Yes, I can search line by line for a station but until I use google maps to see which station is closest, I have no idea which line(s) will get me from my location to my destinations. At this point it's still easier to use the destination map at the station to plan my route.
I also saw no rate info on the app. These two features would be very beneficial to visitors. Since the app asks to track me by my location, it could also deliver destination pricing and know if it's peak or off peak.
Nowhere to go but up with this app. I really didn't want to give it one star but I can't give 0.
Best App Ever! 5/5
This app is my go to and I've shared it with anyone who will listen!!
Very Helpful 4/5
This app has been very helpful for my day to day commute. I no longer have to wonder if the buses are on schedule each day.
the status tracker for the dc circulator is accurate about 10% of the time.
Too Often Inaccurate 1/5
Frustrated enough with this app to write my first app review. Bus arrival information is inaccurate far too often, leading to unnecessary missed busses. The bus is my primary mode of transportation around DC, so this has a significant impact for me. This app’s information often does not even match info on wmata’s website bus ETA tracking, in my experience. Where is this app getting data? For all of its faults, I miss Next Bus.
I like the app very much 5/5
I can pull up schedules and times.....
Giving false arrival times! App is pissing me off! 2/5
This was my favorite app but now it's giving me false arrival times for the only bus I use. It makes me miss my bus all the time. The W6 going towards the station. The stop in front of my building the app says it will be arriving in 2 mins so I go outside and the bus will have already been to that stop and gone. When the app says arriving 4 mins that's when the bus is arriving to my stop. I thought it was just a late bus but no it continues to happen for several days now and it's pissing me off. The app has to get it together or I'll find another app that actually will be of use to me and that will give me correct times. Several wrong arrival times on numerous days is ridiculous.
app performance is okay. bottom line though is that dc metro should give us an app that doesn't have additional advertising displayed the entire time, not one where you have to pay them even more money to get rid of adds that shouldn't be there in the first place
